Dataset: RV Investigator Voyage IN2016_V04 CTD Data


This record describes the Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) data collected from the Marine National Facility RV Investigator voyage IN2016_V04, titled: "Influence of temperature and nutrient supply on the biogeochemical function and diversity of ocean microbes." The voyage took place between August 31 and September 22, 2016 departing from Sydney(NSW) and arriving in Brisbane (QLD).

Data for 56 deployments were acquired using the Seabird SBE911 CTD 20, fitted with 24 ten-litre bottles on the rosette sampler. The Seabird SBE911 has dual conductivity and temperature sensors. The CTD was additionally fitted with SBE43 dissolved oxygen sensors, fluorometer, transmissometer, PAR sensor and LADCP sensors. These sensors are described in the processing report.

The collected data was subsequently processed and archived within the CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere (O&A) in Hobart. Additional information regarding this dataset may be contained in the Voyage Summary and the CTD Data Processing Report.
